It is becoming obvious to me that the PC is becoming more and more the channel through which we will receive entertainment - video - audio - gaming- etc. Particularly as 20mbs broadband is now on roll out. But the present PC hardware offerings do not seem to recognise this. What do I want A box which is effectively a nice looking box which is a laptop without a screen or keyboard to sit on the glass stand under my (yet to be bought) large screen LCD. It should have a large disc and fast processor of course and a DVD rewriter. Wifi enabled and of course an excellent cached video card. Software that is similar to a PVR but enables direct recording to disc or DVD. The keyboard should be full size and remote and incorporate a decent mouse substitute (old Logitech trackerbals were great). option of gaming handsets. Flash type memory plug in would also be great given that the capacity of this media is now becoming video compatible. I could then even select and stream material via my main PC via wifi for direct viewing to it. Yes I realise I could put together something like this from currently available hardware but I would be buying more than I need and it aint exactly designed around the application. It would cost a lot more than it need. I would be looking for a price of around £200. Given that what I am saying is that in future this box should be as common under the TV as a VHS recorder was 10 years ago then this price should be easily achievable. It is time that the Dells, HP's etc responded to this requirement. I see no evidence of it in their offerings as yet.
